As part of the Sunbury Road Upgrade, we’ll:

  • upgrade the roundabout at Bulla-Diggers Rest Road

  • upgrade the existing and build a new bridge over the Jacksons Creek

  • build walking and cycling paths along the road

  • install safety barriers along the road.


Project benefits

The Sunbury Road Upgrade will:

  • improve traffic flow and travel times

  • provide more reliable travel between Sunbury and Melbourne Airport

  • easier and safer for walking and cycling around the local area

  • lower the risk and severity of crashes with safety barriers.



What we heard about the Sunbury Road Upgrade

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on the proposed design of the Sunbury Road Upgrade. Your feedback has helped shape the final design scope of the road upgrade.

In September and October 2018, we shared our proposed design of the Sunbury Road Upgrade and received over 130 pieces of feedback from the community in the area. We then provided this feedback to the project team who used it to refine the proposed design.

During consultation, we heard the following themes are important to the community:

  • traffic congestion

  • travel times

  • local access

  • safety

  • the environment

Feedback we received during consultation has been used to update the proposed design of the Sunbury Road Upgrade. We’ll now:

  • replace the roundabouts at Francis Boulevard and Lancefield Road with traffic lights

  • provide a wide boulevard median north of Lancefield Road

  • improved entry points to local businesses along Sunbury Road.


Next steps

The Sunbury Road Upgrade is part of the Northern Roads Upgrade, which will upgrade six key roads in the north. The Northern Roads Upgrade will be delivered as Public Private Partnership (PPP). This means we’ll engage a contractor through a competitive process to deliver the design and construction of the road upgrades.

We released a request for proposal (RFP) on 25 March 2019 to deliver 12 projects as part of the South Eastern and Northern Roads Upgrades. Construction will start from 2020.


What is the Suburban Roads Upgrade

The Northern Roads Upgrade is one of three packages in the Suburban Roads Upgrade. The Suburban Roads Upgrade is a $4 billion investment in the Northern, South-Eastern and Western suburbs to ease congestion, and to make it quicker, easier and safer for commuters to get to where they are going.
